wn. n. J A CO BY, EOlWR. BLG0I1SBIRG,' WEDNESDAY, MARCH" 13, 1SGI. itiT. . Sr., Lincoln's Inanjuial. The 'inauguration of Abraham Lincoln, its the : sixteenth rPresident of tbe United Sta'es, (provided all people think them uni ted,) occurred at Washington, on Monday of last week j arid lh3 address, deli vered by the ' President oa the occasion, will be found oa our first ;page, entire.- Tbe so much talked of disturbance did not take place, and all be proceedings of tbe day were characterized $y the utmost good hu mor on 'tire part of the populace. This in augural address was deliverevTIrora the por lico'oi the Capitol. In his address, some of tb.3 Press have a notion that he hints at the Lime ground assumed by Mr. Bcchakam, in Jiis last message, in relation to the question of secession. It appears difficult to arrive at the true irtftrpretation of his whole mes sage.' ' We notice that one party declare it means war, another that it means peace. The South say it means coercion, told in velvety language. , We notice, in one par ticular clause, he says, that it is bis inten tion to where offices are made vacant, by resignation in the seceded Slates, and no person can be found in the locality to ac cept the same to force strangers upon them. Such a couise, as he wiy well be lieve, would only perplex, aggravate and excite the people. He declares his pur pose to preserve the public , peace, to lake hmI to hold all national property, and all without the shedding of blood t While doing this he indicates that he will take no steps which lock like war upon the South. His purpose is thought a hard one to carry out, unless he is able to cause some spell to come over the Southern people, operating similar to the effects of mesmerism.. Mr. Douglas declared in the Senate in a speech that the address meant peace. But upon ; the whole, while there are some portions of the document which do not -entirely har monize 'with his peaceful professions, we leel dposefJ to consTue it as a State paper iflndinz to conservatism rather than other wise. If be is sincere in bis Ms friends and advisers true to their pro fessions, swe may expect him to pursue a peaceful policy, and thus fling the Chicago Platform to the dogs. But let him attempt to make one demonstration of war, or co ercion, 'and his administration, the Union, and the liberties or thi3 people protected I y .a -constitutional Government will be engolfed in ruin and rhaos. For the sake of the Union and the people, let us sincere ly trust that fhe new Preeident will cast off the trammels of Party, and standing with the GansUlafion in one hand and the Olive Branch in the other, extend them withl their guarantees unimpaired to onr breth ren of the South, and unite them, in the spirit of our fathers, to come back and share Lincoln's Cabinet. .Below we give the members of President Lincoln's Cabinet. It is composed of near ly all shades and colors, and with the-ac-ceplion of Seward,, Chase, Cameron,; and btm, they paj conrpajatiyely obscure and UBktiown--fnen otVho mark. 5 Cameron, Cfcare" andrWellesare known' TO have' be longed to ihe' democratic party, and it was a blessed thing for ii that they were read out. Seward, Chase and Bate, even are only secorfd rate statesmen. But all this matters not; this Cabinet is" to be viewe-1 in other aspects. Between Seward and Chase there is understood to be an irrecon cilable hostility. One heads the moder ate (!) the olher the .coercive and uncom promising wing of the Republican party. The appointment of Chase is a fair tribute to Horace Greeley, the ultra editor of the Tribune, and a gross insult to the South, to the border States, to the Union men in the border States. . Several prominent men'df .Virginia remonstrated strongly with Lincoln against the appointment of this mart demons went so Tar as to say to the Pres ident that Virginia would secede if he put Chase in his Cabinet, but it appears to have had uoeffeat. So the border slave-States will have the fraud of SEWARD-nd the violence of Chase to contend against poison and the sword. In the Post Office Department will be a bitter, disappointed Southern reneaade, un der whose auspices the border Stales will be filled with incendiary letters, ;papers and publicat ions. The Post Office, with its infi nite and all-pervading ramifications, vi II be the great engine of abolitionism-and ser vile insurrection. Against its insidious and secret influence there will be -no defence. No Southern hearth will be safe. 'The preference of Chase over Cameron for the Treasury is an insult and a blow to Pennsylvania and her interests. The "Ban ner State" is signed, Cameron set aside be cause of his favoring her, and Chase, whose tariff views are at least questionable,, pnt over him. The patronage for which the Pennsylvania Wide Awakes struggled so hard, is taken from thera to be distributed by Chase end Blair among their friends, the ultra Republicans. The Treasury ar.d the Post Office Departm ents have the great bulk of the patronage, while the War De partment promises but little to the hun dred hordes of Pennsylvania patriots. We Seward and the Feace Conference. It would appear from what we have read that the mighty ; conservative Seward re jects the plan" of adjustment offered by the Peace Convention, ad' takes 'occasion to make an approach towards a practical ap plication of ? the sentiments of his U'.e speech delivered in the Senate, in regard to consider amendments to the constitution, "aftert hese eccentric secession movements" shall subside, "say in one, two or three year." - That's the-way in which Mr Lincoln's Premier takes the plan ol the Peace Con feree. As for Concress, it will doubtless pass it by indisdain. But will lb i s plan satisfy trre South'? The cotton States will spit upon it, and if the'border States shall be satisfied with it, then will they resemble a chihbpteased -with-a -rattle. If this thing satisfies them, then,'indeed re they easily satisfied then they have : put the country to much trouble -and much distress for no purpose. Their excitement, their agitation, have been useless and absurd.. They have been "Like ocean into tempests tossed. " To wait a feather, or to drown a fly." No. this abortion will not satisfy the bor 'der'States It may, and doubtless -vill sat isfy those who want to carry favor with Lin coin in order to "get office," or thosta obi, broken -down federal hacks, whose only aim is to raise up opposition to the 'Democracy; but it will satisfy no others in the border Slates. The likelihood is, that it will excite only disappointment and disgust. The Virginia Convention is still in session, and we will soon learn in what manner she will receive this plan the illegitimate birth of the Peace Conference. The Latest. Jt wa reported hereabouts, that "Fort St?mpter was evacuated, on Tuesday lasu This is .not the course the ultra portion'of; the Republican party desired to be pursued by the Administration. They were loud in their denunciations against Buchanan for not re enforcing Fort Sumpter... It may not be true that this Fort is evacuated ; but true or not, a number of -Republican Congress men whoare yet in Washington are-urgent against the withdraw! of the troops; and at the same time it is deemed impossible by the test military authority to Te-tenforce this Fort with less than 10 000 men, and at least half of lire Navy operating in the harbor.! This Fort will nost likely be evacuated, if it is not already. Maj. Anderson is about out oflood, and it is not likely ho and his small force will be kept there to perish by starvation. Wi hdraw these troops and then-some of our danger will be averted and peaceful negotiations begin. The New Tariff bill. The new Tariff bill, jvhich, since the agreement of the Committee of Conlerence, in striking out the duly on tea and coffee, may be regarded as having passed, is ex pected to yield ar increased revenue of $19,920,850 on the principal imports. At least such is the estimate of the Hon. Wm. Bigler, of Pennsylvania, who, in defending the bill in be Senate, remarked in sub stance as follows : For the last yerr the importation of wo-I en amounted to$37,937,00U, and the duties to S$,1S5,-0OO.

MrLincoln's Recklessness of Assertion. The heresies and crudities of Mr. Lin coln's Inaugural are sufficiently revolting to men of taste, as well as to all patriotic instincts ; bur he does not seem to think so, for to these blemishes he mperadds the utterance of a deliberate and audacious un truth. :Look, for instance, at the following passage : "Apprehension seems to exist amo.ig the people of the Southern States, that by the accession of a Republican Adminisiration, their properly, and their peace and person al security are to be endangered. Ihere never iias been any reasonable utuse for such cjrpre hemion. Indeed, the inoji ample evkleme to the contrary h is been open to their inspection." Whocojld have believed that there is a man living, who in the presence of uch surroundings as attended the inauguration of tiie Chief Magistrate of the Nation, would have had the hardihood to make the bold and reckless assertions contained in the above paragraph ? The Southern States have no reasonable cause for apprehension! Not after the John Brown raid, and when it was discovered that Republican leaders were in the.plot 1 . Not after the brutal and bloody speech of Sumner, denouncing the Southern people as -guilty of all the crimes nominated in the decalogue ? TheTollj ind Wickedness of Abolitionism. Whilst the country is convulsed from cen ire to circumference by disputes arising out of the slavery -question, the slav-e himself is in a Ft ate of quietude, calmly enjoyins? the comforts of life, and wondering why he should e made the object of so much soli citude and- commoiion- Contented and wiih os, m peace, the blessings ol tne in-1 happy in his present condition., when let ion and the Constitution, in the shadow of ! h(, manifests no disposition to chanse . - the Siars and Stripes, " not grudgingly, but Ireely and generously." . i, with the almost certain prospect of be- .. tl IT.'

The impoMat:ons ot wines for the las: year amounted to 34,775,000, and at the present rate of duty 30 per cent the revenue wa SI 434,500. We have concluded to put it at 40 per cent , which of course.cives an increase of 477,000 The importation of brandies f;r the last year was 3,037 flOO, ami the duiies amounted to Si. 181, 000 The increase under the present bill would be Si, 347,000. The importations of couons amounted to over 2.27,000,000 last year, and ihe duiiei exceeded SG,5000,000. The estimated increase is 1,645,000. On the vast variety of fabrics ol mixed goods.cloth i ii cr , &c, the increase is estimated at $849, 000.

The total gains, therefore, on this esti ma'e are S13.764.840. Deduct from this the reduction on f-ngarand molasses $2, 843 000 and it would leave an increase of '.0 920 840. The proposed duty on tea and coffee, which wis stricken out by the house, would, it was estimated, yield a yearly rever.oe of from S5:000 000 to 56.000, but this wa not included in Mr. Bigler estimate. ty of fiends, 1ae eongfrf to embitter his last days, to make hia home hateful and his neighbors enemies,, be has relumed to Lan caster only to find that the "assults of these insrates have made his triends more ardent jind more numerous. the soil of Virginia as a liberator, as the avenger of tbe wrons of tbe slaves, and there proclaimed that he had come to give liberty to the captive.

Under this ."apprehension" . of Republi can rule, of which Mr. .Lincoln speaks, seven States have already under the sol emn sanction of the people in their sover eign capacity retired from the Union, and prefer even eivil war to submission. Doe? any one believe that this awful condition of -our -country going to wreck by piec-meal i would have occurred, but for ihe exis- j tence and triumph of ihe Republican party? ' Would not the election of either Brfxkin iuDtiic, Bkll or Doi'ulas have averted this dire calamity, and insured p-.ace and Iran juility to the Union t And yet Abraham Lincoln, in the -august presence of the Judges of the Supreme Court, of the retir ing President, of the members of both Hou ses of Congress, and of a vast multitude of people, proclaims that the apprehension of the South from Republican rule was entire ly groundless. How the man has stultified himself and ignored the trsth of history ! Pcnnsylvanian. Buchanan's Arrival at Lancaster. i Lancaster, "RTirch 6 The train with Ex President Buchanan and the Commiuees and friends accompanying him reached this city atont 2$ o'clock. Its arrival was an nounced by the' firing of cannon and the ringing of the bells of the various churches of the city. . . .. .. An immense crowd had coileced at the intersection of the Harrisburg turnpike and the railroad, ai.d as the train approached, with the locomotive gaily decorated with flags, the cheering was vociferous. Soon after Mr. Buchanan made his appearance and was greeledvwiih the wildest demon sirations of hearty welcome. He was es corted to an open barouche drawn by four spirited white horses, aud look a seat with the Mayor of the city. The procession was then formed, the" es cort being composed of the Lancaster Fen- cibles, the'jackson Rifles, the Maylown In fantrv. the Baltimore battalion, -and the j i Worth Infantry and the York Rifle. Fol lowing these came the City Councils, va rious literary and other societies, the fire companies and an immense body of citi zens. The procession passed through a number of the principal streets of the ci-y, all of which were densely drbw'deJi, while flags and banners decorated the route. At a few minutes past 4 o'clock the pro cession reached Centre Sqnare, where an immense multitude) bad assembled. A platform had been erected in front of the Post Office, to which Mr. Buchanan was conducted, when Mr. Preston, on the part of the Baltimore City Guards, in a few neat and appropriate remarks, handed over Mr. Buchanan to the authorities and citizens of his much loved Lancaster, followed. Mayor Sanderson, on behalf of the city authoriiiett, welcomed the ExPresident to his'hofnfe, as follows : mayor Sanderson's speech. Mr. Buchanan Uonored Sir : It -rs my pleasure to have been deputed bv the citi zens of Lancaster, irrespective of party, to extend to you a cordial welcome back to your own home and fireside, and to those social enjoyments ar.d courtisies from your old neighbors and friends from which yon have in a great measure been debarred for Great cheering tation of yo'ir friendship and respect.

Applause- I do not intend referring to the political affairs of our country. My public acts have been committed to the pases of hislory,and lime alone can decide whether they hare been right or wrong; if, however, any of these have been displeasing to the residents of Lancaster, I respectfully ask your pardon, In 1809, -now more than 50 year's ago, I made this city my home, and, as I remark ed to the Pies'ulent (Mr. Lincoln,) upon leaving Washington "If, in coing into the White House, you are as happy as I feel leaving it, and returning to Wheatland, then, sir, I think yon are the happiest man in the world." God grant lhat "the Union and the Consti tution may be preserved, and that the troub les which now surround us may pass away as the early dew before the rising sun Applause I again thank you for this manifestation of your regard, and my fer vent prayer is, "uod grant that the Union may be perpetuated."

We clip the following item from a recent number of the London (Co un) Journal. "We haye of late observed with pleasura ble fee'ings a growing tendency among the higher circles to contract a closer intimacy I with the disciples of Art and Science. This is as it should be, for in our humble opin ion England rises higher in the scale of civ ilization by the fertile genius of her sons than by the rays of military glory reflected from her arms. Al the late levee in the Queen's Drawing Rooms among other nota bilities we noticed with unfeigned satis faction the celebrated Dr. Holloway, whose Pills and Ointment have won lor him a uni versal and imperishable name, his sober habli ments strangely contrasted with ihe elegant and recherche dress of the courtiers who surrounded him. On introducing him to ihe Queen, Her Majesty extended her haud to him in the most gracious and smil in" manner, detaining him a few moments by well merited compliments to his fame, which haJ been echoed to the uttermost boundaries of the earth, wherever sickness had found a "local habitation," or disease sown its dragon's teeth. Her Majesty par ticularly alluded to the benefits which not only the wounded British but even French Soldiers had received Irom his Ointment during the Russian war. The Doctor bowed his venerable head in acknowledgement of this proud tribute from his Sovereign Mistress to hi unceasins eflorts in the cause of suffering humanity. Fxom the uni ted testimony of the Medical Staff, the Of ficers, and Miss Florence Nightingale, who all concurred in the great efficacy of Dr Holloway's Ointment in gun-shot wounds sloughing ulcers, sabre cuts and contusions, the Government has issued orders that the Ointment be used for dressins in all the Military Hospitals throughout Great Britain and her dependencies." 4 'Chester" Morn inz Times." perienceJ by any of -our distinguished predecessors in the high office ; and you retire from the Chair of State at a perilous time, through the machinations of foreign and dom-er-tic foes, commenced years ago, the nation is convulsed lrom its centre to its circumference when seven of our sister States are in open -rebellion against the au thority -of the General Government and i all accidents of this of character.

That decision has now been given and Mr. Walker, who was m dsa his own words, "a bessar in the morning," went home lo dinner a million when the dancers oT civil war and blood shed are fearfully imminent. That such a sad condition x things is deprecated by you, as it is by every true hearted patriot in the land, cannot ba doubted. We know that you anticipated and faithfully warned your fellow-citizens, time and again, of the dangers that at the present moment men ace the country; and now that the troubles you predicted with true staiesmanlike sa gacity as the result ol a sectional contro versy of long duration are upon us in all their horrors and intensity short of the phedding of fraternal blood, which has, so ar, been happily averted by your calmness and prudence I am sure that no language I can employ will be sufficient to express the deep feeling of grief which must per vade your bosom al the discordant and dis severed condition of the country.
